23 Sep Was he referring to Louis Galea?
From Godfrey Farrugia’s interview in today’ s Sunday Times
Ivan Camilleri asked him – Like you, I’ve been around for quite some time, although in journalism. I remember Prime Minster Eddie Fenech Adami trying to convince you to become a PN MP, eventually a possible member of his Cabinet. Why did you refuse?
Godfrey replied – I never refused the offer. Dr Fenech Adami wanted me to be part of his team but the prevailing circumstances in the Żebbuġ district at the time, and other forces within the same party, made it difficult for me to contest.
Ivan Camilleri – So you didn’t actually say no?
Godfrey Farrugia – No. I never refused. But there were other forces in the district who made sure that I did not contest. You can assume why. At the time I was very popular and some thought I was too big of a risk.
That was the conversation between Ivan and Godfrey. Now I have also asked a question, probably the most pertinent, and in the next Blog you’ll realise why.
